Houston Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer

In recent decades, the number of drunk driving accidents had seen a steady decrease. Public service campaigns, such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving and Students Against Drunk Driving, have contributed to the nation’s awareness of the problem. However, despite their best efforts, numerous drunk driving accidents happen every year. While intoxicated drivers can face a wide range of criminal charges, they can also be targeted for civil suits, especially if those accidents result in injuries to other drivers or pedestrians.

Victims of drunk driving accidents may have various options for justice and financial recovery. While money can undo a crash, it can help victims restore their lives.

Drunk Driving Accidents: DUI vs. DWI

When an intoxicated driver is involved in a drunk driving accident, that driver can face a charge of either driving while under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI). The primary difference between the charges lies in the age of the intoxicated driver. A driver of legal drinking age will be charged with DWI if tests show that the driver had a blood alcohol content (BAC) of at least 0.08. A driver under the age of 21 involved in a drunk driving accident will often be charged with DUI, regardless of the driver’s BAC.
